The Esports Coach of the Year honours a member of staff for a professional esports organisation or team in a coaching capacity who has been active in the role over the past year. Their work with their team will have had a significant impact on results and overall quality of the team and improved the working lives of their players. Their specialty might lie in excellent pre-game preparation, rousing mid series pep talks to inspire confidence or offering valuable insights to what the team is doing.
